Category: Teaser Thursday

Grab a current read, open to a random page (either by flipping through it, using a randomizer, or let my boyfriend pick), and pick 2 (or more) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, write them down, pick a cover, and done.

Credit for this one (though I changed Tuesday to Thursday): Should Be Reading blog

Teaser Thursday ~ Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire

Teaser Thursday ~ Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire


I let Random.org select a page, and it selected page 105 (though since the last sentence continues in 106, a bit of that page is here as well).

As Arlo got closer, he realized the “cliff” was actually just a massive wedge of rock embedded in the hillside. At most it was ten feet above the ground. It looked much higher because the mountain sloped away from it, revealing the whole valley. Climbing up beside his sister, Arlo could see the town of Pine Mountain below: the flat roof of the school, the church steeples, the gas station sign. Everything looked tiny, like the buildings of a model train.

Teaser Thursday ~ After The Lights Go Out

Teaser Thursday ~ After The Lights Go Out


I let Random.org pick a % and it went for 19%!

There’s no gradual transition from town or country here. No scattered houses or fields or orchards. As soon as we pass the petrol station, we’re in the desert, with nothing but four hundred kilometres of scrub between us and Hansbach.
I gently ease my foot down on the accelerator. The Holden’s engine growls and the ute surges forward. It feels a little bit like driving off a cliff -I have no idea what we’ll find at the bottom, and if we get stuck there’ll be no one to come and rescue us.

I let random.org select a page and it selected page 111 (though part of this teaser is also on 112).

‘Yes, sir,’ said Lemmy. ‘And your name?’
‘Mr Grayson,’ said the cat. ‘I want a quiet room. No disturbances. A saucer of milk left outside my door at sunrise, and breakfast at seven a.m.. Litter tray, not toilet – cleaned twice daily.’
‘Certainly, sir,’ said Lemmy, hastily filling out the entry in the guestbook.

Teaser Thursday ~ Stripped Down

Teaser Thursday ~ Stripped Down


Today is Valentine’s Day, so I went for 14% (as this is an ebook).

She was biting her lip and wrinkling her nose simultaneously. “Well, at least let me do something.”
God if she only knew what he wanted. Watching her, nothing had changed. He still felt attracted to Sloane. She was wearing a tank top that showed off her breasts in a way that made his mouth water.

Teaser Thursday ~ Royal Rebel

Teaser Thursday ~ Royal Rebel


Tried at first with Random.org but it kept suggesting the same # pages. 😛 So I decided to pick a page of my own, and that was page 32!

Plus I’ve decided I’m going to do a Tiara Girl video wearing a REAL TIARA!
So that’s actually three enormous surprises!
I just have to make sure I don’t get caught.
But surely I can come up with a good plan, right?
An Alice-proof, Grandmaman-proof plan, a no-one-in-the-palace-will-see-me kind of plan.
Right??
Right.

Teaser Thursday ~ Gunsmoke & Glamour

Teaser Thursday ~ Gunsmoke & Glamour


Today is January 31st, so I thought it would be fun to use that for today’s Teaser Thursday. Since this one is an ebook, I went with 31%.

She must have sensed him hesitating on her front lawn because she came to the window and unlatched it, leaning over the box of flowers. The moonlight made her hair gleam like spun silver. It also made the white teeth inside her smile resemble horrible, gnashing fangs. Clay didn’t know if he should run at her or away from her.
By the tilt of her head and the come-hither motion of her hand, probably far, far away.

Teaser Thursday ~ Letters From The Lighthouse

Teaser Thursday ~ Letters From The Lighthouse


Today is 24.1 so I decided it would be nice as a page number, 241 it is!

I was about to tell him how nice he looked when Pixie’s barked. In a scrabble of paws, she shot off across the room to greet someone she knew who was coming in the door. The person was wearing short trousers that didn’t cover his scabby knees, and my heart leaped because it was Cliff.

Teaser Thursday ~ A Boy Called Bat

Teaser Thursday ~ A Boy Called Bat


I let random.org pick a new number for today’s Teaser Thursday and, after a few trial and errors, it finally found a page with an interesting/cute part, namely on page 22.

Bat watched as Mom shifted the towel in her arms. A nose peeked out -a tiny pink nose- and then two slanted-closed eyes, a forehead covered in downy fuzz, little ears still curled tight against its head.
Jamie began, “Is that a-”
“It’s a kit,” Bat said, enchanted by the tiny creature wanting so badly to hold it. “A baby skunk.”

Teaser Thursday ~ Babysitting Nightmares: The Shadow Hand

Teaser Thursday ~ Babysitting Nightmares: The Shadow Hand


I let Random.org select a page, and it decided on page 113.

That night at the Dunmores’, four exhausted girls stood in a nervous circle around the changeling baby, who eyed them watchfully from this high-chair.
